The inebriating THC is the best known active ingredient of the hemp plant. What many people do not know is that this active ingredient is only one of many. The impression that only THC leads to an effect and a physical reaction has been strengthened by deliberately breeding hemp varieties with a particularly high THC content in the last decades.
Cannabidiol is an active substance that has at least as many positive effects on the body, but does not have an intoxicating effect. This is the biggest difference to THC. While the use of THC-containing substances falls under the narcotics law, CBD is completely legal. The advocates of the substance had to fight a long battle to make this fact clear. The legal status of cannabidiol is the reason why the active substance can now finally be sufficiently researched and tested.
Various highly complex processes are used to extract and possibly isolate the CBD from the hemp plant. These are time-consuming and costly. But this is the only way to guarantee the high efficiency of the product. In order to achieve the highest possible degree of CBD, we purposely use hemp varieties that contain hardly any THC, but more CBD instead. The opportunities of targeted breeding are also used here.
RESEARCH ON CANNABIDIOL IS CURRENTLY STILL IN FULL SWING. IT IS ASTONISHING TO SEE THAT EVEN YEARS LATER NEW RESULTS ARE STILL EMERGING.
Although physicians have known for decades that cannabidiol has, for example, pain-relieving properties or can support regeneration, there was little evidence because of the lack of studies and the increasingly bad reputation of hemp. Even historians are sure that hemp and especially cannabidiol have played an important role for thousands of years. Indigenous peoples took advantage of the versatile application possibilities of the CBD and treated ailments of different kinds with it.
Modern, recently conducted representative studies show that cannabidiol can show its strengths in the following diseases:
This may seem surprising at first sight, knowing that research on the active substance cannabidiol is far from complete. CBD puts the reputation of the hemp plant back into perspective. This is achieved, among other things, through improved extraction methods and improved products that are easier to use and thus lead more quickly to the desired effect.
The fact that CBD is beneficial to health is also confirmed by the WHO, the World Health Organization. This is therefore a credit for the active substances in a crop that for many decades had an unfairly bad reputation among large sections of the population and among physicians.
